Gunman still at-large; made threats against Wes/Jews

According to a campus e-mail and a public news conference (viewable here), the gunman “expressed threats in his personal journal toward Wesleyan and/or its Jewish students.”  We’re all being urged to stay inside our residences.  Basically everything that requires people walking around campus has been canceled – professors mostly aren’t coming to campus, dining halls aren’t open, and all meetings should be canceled.  Wesleyan students, check your e-mail for info about how to acquire lunch safely.

As you’ve probably noticed, Wesleying isn’t the most up-to-date source for information on this developing story.  The site is having problems with bandwidth overload – we have put measures in place to make the site load more easily and reduce this problem, but it’s not perfect.  The ACB has the most up-to-date (if sometimes incorrect and unnecessarily panic-inducing) info, and the campus alerts have all the necessary info.

Also, NBC has reported additional details about how Stephen  Morgan knew Johanna; apparently she had filed complaints against him in 2007.

Stay safe, Wesleyan.

To reiterate Beau’s latest post, get the most up-to-date info on the situation from the Campus Security newsreel.

    Mad, i think suggesting the acb is a poor decision, especially if you now do not want to put the link.

    I understand not wanted the media to swarm through the ACB. Can you please email it to circuitree7 at gmail? Thank you.

    I think we’re all aware of how ludicrous the ACB can be (I did GO to wes) but wesleying.org won’t come up on my phone and I’d like to hear what students have to say.

    I’m hesitant to just post a link to the ACB. I think it’s a good resource for students right now, but it getting infiltrated by news media is not a good idea right now, as it’s one of the only forums for students to discuss things right now without news vultures swooping in.

    And where can we find the wesleyan ACB now? As I’m sure it’s been restarted 10 times since I last peeked at it. Can someone post a direct link to the current boards? Thank you.

    Nonetheless, it definitely has the most up-to-date news. For instance, it was the first place (along with Wesleying comments) where the victim’s name was released.

    Wow…really? The ACB? I definitely would NOT recommend using the ACB are your first source of info for something like this. I think the parenthetical statement shows that it probably shouldn’t have been mentioned it at all as a news resource.
